U-vibe setup to make it sound like a Mini Deja Vibe or NeoVibe???
by Giax1974 on 2011-11-07 10:34:34

Anyone who succeed on making the M13-M9 U-vibe model sound like a real Univibe?

I never tested a real Univibe, and from what I heard on samples on internet I really like de Fulltone DejaVibe, also I liked a doityourself pedal NeoVibe:

I already tried but I didn't got close, I want to use it for slow ambient chords.

What effects can I mix in the 4 FXslots to make it sound close to a Univibe or Dejavibe?

I've read people put 2 U-vibes on diferent fx slots, others add a little phaser, others a little mod delay, also some people insert a filter before it, and others put a volume swell FXslot.

Sorry if I should tweak more, but I already spent time, and I know that combining the 4fx slots with the M13 you can do magic!

I just want to get some ideas from the experts to check if I really can get the accurate sound, before spending in a vibe pedal, as you can see I am not familiar with a real Univibe. Also surfing on internet I found not too much info about U-vibe setups and tweaking. I heard a lot of people said the U-vibe models are dissapointing, but as I mentioned before I think that combinig Fxslots maybe there is a path to get it sound close.

Thanks in advance!

The Univibe is the M-13's biggest disappointment to me.  I've never been able to dial in a good sound.  Supposedly a better model is high on the list of things to do, but I don't know when it's coming.

This suck, so it is true all the things i read on internet. I thought it could be matter of dialing the correct setup and mixing specific FXs to make it sound  like a real Univibe.

What should be a good vibe pedal to get for less thah $150? I dont want to pay $250 for a Mini deja vibe, I got recommended the  pickle vibe, also the cheap chicken salad (which is $30), microvibe (which sound too crispy to me) and the soulvibe. Unfortunately I cant spend $250 on a real MDV or MEga o mojo vibe...
I don't want to play hendrix, I just need a nice clean vibe sound, very ethereal and organic.

There really is no good UV pedal for $150.  The Danelectro Chicken Salad is the cheapest of them and sounds as good as all the other bugget pedals but none of them sound quite like the real thing.

I just picked a Soul Vibe from BBE, will test it, from what i heard and read on internet is a nice cheap choice + true bypass. If don't like it, I will have to wait to get a mini deja vibe from fulltone in the future. I also continued tweaking m13 u-vibe, couldn't get what I want. Hope the next firmware update can solve this with a better model.

It works fine, I liked it, it accomplished the mission... Anyway, I will like to try the new carl martin vintage Purple Moon though, or try a Mini Deja Vibe at some point.

I got a chance to try the Blackstart HT-Modulation stomp at Winter NAMM...Really impressive to me and it does a great Vibe and a bit more...Anyway, if I needed one that would be it...a good price on those is about $240...
